Back to Chasing Mineral Spirits Out and Ants Do Not have Teeth
As soon as the weather gets warm we have trouble with ants. This year is much better than past years. My husband cut back a tree that was scraping the roof and found a number of ants nests near the house. We hardly have any in the kitchen but we have a good number in the bathroom on the other end of the house. I jokingly asked my husband if they wanted to brush their teeth. He asked me what I would want to do if I spent my time crawling around in the dirt. But, of course, ants don't have teeth. They have a mandible. My husband countered with how do you know? Have you ever really looked that close at one?
I think that as time goes on we are turning into George Burns and Gracie Allen. We certainly are not anywhere as near talented as them, but our humor does resemble their style . I'm not sure which of us is which.
